You could look at JAWS Inspect, which is supposed to do this – I will evaluate it when I get some time. It’s not cheap but it could be worth it if you do a lot of development or testing.

Isaiah, please have a look at Speech History to see if this is something like what you're looking for.

Subject:        Speech Viewer for JAWS?

Sorry for the double post – I sent my previous email with the wrong subject line!

NVDA offers a great feature called Speech Viewer which allows you to visually see what the screen reader is saying. Does JAWS have an equivalent to this? Through a google search, I found a thread from 2013 that suggested using JAWS Braille viewer. It looked promising but it only displays the first 40 characters of what is being read.

I am a user experience (UX) researcher and I’m conducting some accessibility testing on our site with real users. It would be great if I could read and save everything that the screen reader is saying. This will help me analyze what users did so that I can make recommendations to our creative teams on things they can change in order to make users’ experiences more delightful.
